With the likes of Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez at the forefront of this trend, it’s safe to say that leather is no longer reserved for the rocker chicks. Sexy, womanly and edgy – it ticks all the boxes for a statement piece to amp up any old outfit.
And if you haven’t acquainted yourself with high-street store, ZARA, then you really need to – with the leather trend at the core of the store’s ethos, they’re definitely getting it right.
Check out our top 5 ways to work this trend:
1. The Leather Dress
Calling all brave divas! Rocking a full-on leather outfit is one way to make a statement with maximum impact. Like the dress above, it’s clear that a leather dress need not be super-tight to ooze sex appeal. Paired with heeled leather ankle boots or simple sandals, you’ll look on-trend without trying too hard. But if you’re feeling particularly daring, a bodycon leather midi would definitely turn some heads.
2. Leather Trousers/Leggings
If there’s one trend that’s been floating around all season, it’s definitely leather trousers. While some opt for the zip-detailed pair, the seamless leather trousers produce the desired effect.
Best paired with neutral tones and simple accessories, the leather will speak for itself.
3. The Leather Pencil Skirt
Perhaps the easiest way to wear leather, throwing on a leather pencil skirt as a substitute in any tee-and-skirt combo will make all the difference. For a daytime look, a jersey top or sweater tucked with a pair of simple flats will still give you fashionista status.
4. The Leather Peplum
With peplum literally everywhere, it only makes sense to combine it with leather. Boasting a womanly shape with some added edge, for good measure, this could be worn with a bold-colour pair of trousers or pencil skirt.
5. Leather Accents
If you’re looking to play it safe, leather accents are the way to go. A leather sleeve or two, or leather panelling on a jacket can still go a long way. It’s a subtle way to be on-trend; but on-trend, nevertheless.
Which look do you prefer?
Either way, you’ll look sexy.
